While rummaging through the boat's provisions, one of the men stumbled across an old lamp. Secretly hoping that a genie would appear, he rubbed the lamp vigorously. To the amazement of the castaways, a genie came forth. This particular genie, however, stated that he could only deliver one wish, not the standard three. Without giving much thought to the matter the man blurted out, "Make the entire ocean into beer!" The genie clapped his hands with a deafening crash, and immediately the entire sea turned into the finest brew ever sampled by mortals. Simultaneously, the genie vanished. Only the gentle lapping of beer on the hull broke the stillness as the men considered their circumstances. One man looked disgustedly at the other whose wish had been granted. After a long, tension filled moment, he spoke: "Nice going idiot! Now our boat is the only urinal for 500 miles around!" ______________________________________________________ From FB ______________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ Reported by the Bausell Sailor An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Antisha Andrea Brown 23, West Palm Beach Florida Florida woman avoids arrest, then is jailed after boasting of attack A West Palm Beach woman who initially avoided arrest following an alleged attack against a pregnant woman is in the Palm Beach County Jail after she bragged about the assault on social media, according to an arrest report. Antisha Andrea Brown, 23, is facing charges of aggravated battery with a weapon and aggravated battery on a known pregnant woman and is being held without bond. The 19-year-old victim told police that she and another pregnant 19-year-old woman were in a car Dec. 24 when Brown began chasing them around Riviera Beach in her own vehicle. At one point, Brown allegedly menaced the victims with a crowbar and pointed a Taser at them, the report said. Brown ended the chase by crashing into the victims’ vehicle, leaving it inoperable. Riviera Beach police chose not to arrest Brown the day of the incident, the report said. That changed when the victim told police that Brown went on social media “boasting” about destroying the victim’s vehicle while adding the crash would make the victim “walk for the holidays,” the report said. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Liz Re: Computer keeps shutting down Dear Webby I have a problem. Every few minutes or so, my comupter shuts down and restarts itself, even if I am in the middle of doing something. It is most annoying, and I am almost ready to toss the thing. Also, I had been using Incredimail but it was causing problems. Since deleting it, I am no longer receiving mail from my cousin in England. He is at I hope you can help. Thanks. Liz Dear Liz That sounds like either -your computer is severely overheating, -or you have one of the Shut-Down viruses. Run a good virus scan like Malwarebytes to rule out the viruses. If the machine won't stay up long enough for that, then you'll have to either clean it yourself or bring it to your friendly neighborhood computer fixer. Desktop computers are easy to clean out. Just open the side panel, vacuum out the dust bunnies, clean the heat sinks and fans with Q-tips and Windex, and close it up again. Laptops require a small Philips screwdriver to open. If that does not help, then you have to bring it to a friend or store, that fixes computers. He can stick an alternate temporary hard drive in there instead of yours, and find out in a minute if the problem is the computer or a virus. If it is the computer, dump it. If the CPU or the motherboard are bad, then they are not worth fixing any more. Just get a brand new computer for less than what some places like Staples charge for trying to fix it. Have FUN!

From Oz Neville had been out of work for a long time and when he was offered a job at the council as a garbage collector, he decided to take it up. On his first day things were going great until he arrived at one house and noticed there was no wheelie bin out the front. Neville thought to himself, "I wanna do a good job and not get fired from here but if they find out I missed one house then I will get fired." So he went up to the door and knocked on it. To his surprise it was a fellow from his old neighborhood who answered. Neville breathed a sigh of relief and said to the other bloke, "Where's ya bin?" The man replied, "I bin on 'olidays," Neville then said, "Na, mate, where's ya BIN?" "I bin on 'olidays I tell ya," was the reply. Neville, slightly frustrated, says, "Na, ya silly idiot. Where's ya Wheelie Bin?" The other bloke looked round to see who might be listening. "Well," he said. "I weally bin in jail but I'm tellin' everyone I bin on 'olidays." -------- For those of you, who still use garbage bags at the curb, "Wheelie Bins" are big, tall garbage cans with wheels, that are picked up by trucks with hydraulic grippers instead of a crew tossing bags into the truck by hand.

Daily tip from Super Duper De-Greaser By melissa [293 Posts, 425 Comments] Now you finally have something useful you can make with all those annoying little soap slivers. You don't have to throw them out anymore, make an all purpose kitchen cleaner! With a few minutes and virtually no cost, you can have a bottle full of de-greaser ready to go. Re-duce, re-use, go green! :) Total Time: 20 minutes Yield: 22 ounces Source: Modified from an idea in a book called Make It Supplies: 1/4 cup finely chopped soap slivers 1 Tbsp borax 2 3/4 cup water empty spray bottle funnel Steps: As you can see, I opted for intact fingers and chose to chop the soap with a knife. The pieces are just too small. :) Add 1 cup of water to a pot. Add your soap. Stir continuously with a fork or whisk over medium/high heat until soap is dissolved. This should take about 5 minutes. Soap soup, smells really clean! Add this mixture to your bottle. Add the borax. Add remaining 1 3/4 cups water. Replace top and gently tilt back and forth to combine. Make a new label so you know what it is. :) All set! Great for grimy stoves, oven hoods, microwaves, etc.

A guy who turned his graffiti into art.
An artist asked the gallery owner if there had been any interest in his paintings on display at that time. "I have good news and bad news," the owner replied. "The good news is that a gentleman inquired about your work and wondered if it would appreciate in value after your death. When I told him it would, he bought all 15 of your paintings." "That's wonderful!" the artist exclaimed. "What's the bad news?" "The guy was your doctor."
